About this Item

(16)pp. This short text describes things a book can be, starting with the practical ("a general term given to a variegated species whose individual members share the trait of being composed of several sheets of paper of like size.") and becoming increasingly more fanciful ("Books can serve as. contents for dummy suitcases left behind in cheap hotels when sneaking out on the bill, as metonymic representations of human activity by stylists required to furnish rooms for magazine photographs, as stand-ins for guests when one is hosting a large dinner party to which nobody comes."). In a striking designer binding by Kater-Crafts of black leather with brown, grey, and gold snakeskin and leather insets. Against the flat black background, the eye is drawn to the variety of textures and colors in the insets fanning across the boards. Gilt title to spine. Housed in a black cloth clamshell box. Very fine. (2 15/16 by 2 5/16; 75x58mm). Bookseller Inventory # 26002
